ORGANIZATION: CoachArt

Do you have a hobby or skill you love? Painting, photography? Yoga or yo-yo?

CoachArt is looking to pair YOU and your hobby with an awesome kid who shares your interests.

CoachArt brings arts and athletics activities to children living with chronic illness. We provide both One-on-One lessons and Group lessons through our many amazing volunteers.

"I’ve been volunteering with CoachArt for the past two years. It’s one of the most gratifying experiences I’ve ever had. I teach guitar, and this gives me a reason to keep up with my playing.

I feel like I get just as much out of our weekly sessions as my students do." Jeff, CoachArt volunteer coach

If you have 4 hours to spare (1 hour a week for 4 weeks) and an interest in art, performing arts, or sports, you can put a smile on a kid’s face -- and we guarantee you’ll be smiling, too!

Mission Statement

CoachArt’s mission is to create a transformative arts and athletics community for families impacted by childhood chronic illness.

Description

CoachArt is a non-profit organization offering free lessons in the arts and athletics to children impacted by chronic illness, ages 5-18. Our vision is that one day every family impacted by chronic illness will be connected to a community of support and an opportunity to learn and grow together.

We partner with talented volunteers and arts/athletics programs to offer lessons in music, art, yoga, photography, dance, soccer - and more! Our CoachArt team matches each individual child with our volunteers and program partners, who provide 8 week lessons in a shared activity of choice.
